RE: steering question for the 70's 114
I allways adjust the steering gear allowing a slight play. If adjusted too tight, it will literally steer like a GAZ Volga. It just won't center correctly. That's not what we want.
It's easy to adjust it with 2 spanners on top.
Hard to say if it's too loose in your case without seeing it, but I would not have it too tight. Finish the job, and test the vehicle. You can fine tune it later.
